FLORAL TRIBUTES AND HANDCRAFTED MEMORIALS
At A L & G Abbott, we understand that you will wish to pay tribute to your loved one both on the day of their funeral and for the rest of time. For this reason we recommend both a floral service and handcrafted memorial stones. There are many options so as to provide for all tastes. The florist can create a variety of beautiful floral tributes, offer advice on colours and work with us to arrange every detail.
The gentle beauty of flowers helps you offer feelings of sympathy and comfort at a sensitive and emotional time. Flowers dress the hearse and the coffin and provide mourners with the opportunity to express their condolences. The florists will liaise directly with A L & G Abbott to ensure the flowers are in place in good time for the cortege to set off.
We are pleased to recommend Cottage Garden & Greycourt Florists, both of Kempston, Should you prefer, they will visit you at your home to discuss what flowers would be suitable for your requirements.
Some of the floral tributes they offer include:
- Coffin sprays
- Open heart tributes
- Based hearts
- Prayer books
- Single or double ended oasis sprays
- Funeral wreath rings
- Personal tributes
- Children's tributes
- Tied sheafs
